Free product from Birchbox + how to save 50% on every box.

This is a good deal.

If you use any kind of beauty product (shampoo, sunscreen, makeup…), and especially if you prefer premium products and/or enjoy trying new things, then you can get a lot of value out of this offer.

What is Birchbox?

Birchbox is a subscription box – a handpicked mix of luxe beauty samples and other goodies that you get in the mail every month. The samples are varied, high-quality, and very packable – perfect for traveling. I’ve been a Birchbox subscriber for years, and I’m not planning on stopping anytime soon…mainly because of the value I am able to get from the deal.

It’s not just for females!

Birchbox has both a women’s and a men’s version of the boxes. The men’s is actually a little more substantial than the women’s, but it is also more expensive ($20 vs. $10).

How can I save 50% each month?

Subscription boxes are fun, but the key is to find a way to make them affordable. Many subscription boxes are $20-$40/month, which adds up quickly. The cost of a Birchbox subscription is already fairly reasonable: $10/month. But you know we can do better than that!

If you spend five minutes each month to give feedback on the products in your Birchbox, you earn points which you can redeem for full-size products.  You can earn 50-70 points a month, which translates into $5-$7.  So essentially the cost of the box is only $3-$5/month. (To leave a review, just click on “Box,” then click on the product(s) in your box that you’d like to review.) In fact, you can save even more by redeeming your points strategically – read on for details!

How can I get a free product?

1. Sign up for Birchbox and use code BB100 (for the women’s box) or code BBM100 (for the men’s box). This will deposit 100 points in your account – worth $10.

2. If you like, you can use these points right away to get a free product. Just go to the “$25 and under” section and browse for products that ship free. Here are a few examples:

3. You can also save up your points and redeem them for a more expensive item – this is where you can get the most value for your money!

How to get premium beauty products at a huge discount:

The most important thing is to not order any full-size products until they have a sale! Here is a recent example: I scored two bottles of DDF Brightening Cleanser (retail cost $76) for a total of $13.

  1. I love birchbox! I love how it’s a small very affordable box, and I can personalize my goodies to an extent, by completing the profile.

    I love boxes in general and also have received popsugar musthave, barkbox, runnerbox, stridebox, naturebox.
